Producer/DJ’s Diplo and Switch have put their “post modern songwriting” abilities together to create an exciting new venture with, Major Lazer.
They’ve got a dope track out right now called “Hold the Line” featuring Mr. Lex and Santigold. If you haven’t heard it yet, check it. The track has an animated video which features an extremely muscular Jamaican commando riding a surfboard through outer space with laser beams coming from one arm to blast blood-thirsty zombies. It’s action-packed and, somehow, the video and song blends to appropriate this alternative dancehall sound.
Bacardi B-LIVE will present performances and collaborations from some of the hottest musical acts and DJs of today. Major Lazer is on the bill along with A-Trak, MSTRKRFT, Matt and Kim, Drop the Lime, Santigold, Q-Tip, and the list goes on. Head on over to the Bacardi B-LIVE website for your chance to sign up for FREE tickets. Since Bacardi is the main sponsor and promoting new drinks, this will be a 21 + event. Check the Major Lazer page for a complete listing of their show dates. The album, Gun’s Dont Kill People…Lazers Do, drops June 16th but you can stream it now over on their Myspace page.
